Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching the Camp families for over 40 years as a request from my grandparents, Otis and Litha Camp, who raised me from an infant. I have visited many states and even been to Europe to get information. My wife is probably tired of me using our vacation time and money to visit Camp locations and cemeteries. I do this to keep the Camp memories alive and help us to remember them.

I had gotten started with Find-A-Grave a bit late; consequently, many Camp memorials had been already created. To all you wonderful people who created memorials and have graciously transferred them to me, I THANK YOU!! I will take good care of my ancestors and Camp relatives.

To all you wonderful photographers who have taken headstone photos, THANK YOU!! It all helps to honor our families!

To those of you who have asked, I do NOT have my genealogy on I keep it in a database in my computer where I have complete control over it. HOWEVER, I am willing to help fellow Camp researchers with any questions about the Camp families.

In my spare time I publish genealogy books for others as well as for myself. I have published several books on the Camps of New England. I have finished my book on the Camp Families from Edward Camp; all copies have been sold so we are adding more recent information and creating a second printing. A DVD version will be available soon as well. Contact me if interested.

Clark and Camp
Thanks for linking these family members. The Camps have proven to be one of the more challenging lines. We are cousins through the Clark family. Distant, but related.

RE: James A Heaton 69138499
Hello, and thank you for your question. This couple puzzles me. The picture is from a family album I inherited which identified the couple. I wish I could learn more about them, particularly my Great-Great-Aunt Nettie (Shippee) Heaton. Warmly, Wilma Ann

RE: Marion S. Camp
I have removed the photo as you requested. You may want to contact the individual who created the entry and requested the photo to have the memorial amended to include the correct burial location.

You have an obit in the picture section of this site which Find A Grave says not to do. I have printed out the obit and would be glad to type it out if you get the person to take down the obit in the picture section. I would give him credit for the obit.
Just let me know

Hello Jim, I found a location photo in my database for Sarah G. Rhoades Camp. I uploaded it but will delete it if you'd rather not have it on the memorial. Just let me know. Jennifer

RE: Memorial 68705354
Hello Jim, thank you for pointing this out. You're absolutely correct and I have deleted the photo. If you would like me to get a location photo, or group photo, of where Sarah's grave would have been just let me know. Jennifer
